Bomber via PUB’R. Pours thick and jet black with no head. Nose was heavy dark malt, dark choc, hops. Tastes rich, hefty on the tongue, with dark malt up front, some late chocolate, and some later hops and molasses. Excellent.

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2016
Poured into a snifter. 3.5 A: Black color. Two fingers of creamy/frothy medium brown head. Retention is about what you’d expect from a big beer like this and a short ring of lacing is left. 4.25 S: Awww yeah! This smells wonderful. Big roastiness to start. Layers of caramel and molasses. Oats and vanilla. Mild dark fruitiness. Bittersweet chocolate. 4.25 T: Tastes like it smells. Moderate sweetness, supple roastiness. Oats and vanilla are super strong in the taste. Molasses, caramel, and chocolate. Subtle warming throughout without much booziness. 4.25 M: Heavy body. Good moderate carbonation. Nice creaminess and supremely smooth. 4.5 D: Really good beer. Definitely on par with their other stouts. ★ 730 characters DavoleBomb, Feb 21, 2015

bottle, bah. Stale and grainy. Lots of oxidation, was this old? The oxidation is dominant, minimal chocolate, wouldnt hvave guess it.

Fritz123 (1535) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - NOV 19, 2015
Draft at the tap room at HF in Akron. Pours a deep black with a tan roof. Aroma is big dry roasted malts, dark chocolate, nibs, some sweet cookie dough, and some peat/earth. The taste is similar with the dark chocolate and cocoa nibs up front and ending more peat and roasted. Big body, mild carb. Sticky. Very good.

Huhzubendah (3337) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 14, 2015
Dark brown, opaque, near black body with a thin beige cap. Aromas of roast, char, dark chocolate, rich malt. Similar flavor. Medium thick body with low carbonation. Nicely done. I didn’t realize this was basically a variant of BORIS.

Pours black with a tan head. Aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, caramel, alcohol and hint of licorice. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long warm, roasted, chocolate, coffee, caramel and licorice finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

yngwie (16314) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 16, 2015
Bottle, 22oz, at the taproom. Black in the glass, with a dense finger thick tan head. Some lacing. The aroma has some spiced notes, like a pumpkin ale, with lots of coffee, some dark chocolate and some licorice. It’s full bodied, almost sticky, smooth and warming, with a soft carbonation. Chocolate, booze, coffee, roasted malts, salty licorice and a touch of spiced in the aroma. Lasting finish. Quite lovely this one. 150616

Smell of coffee, chocolate, roasted malt. Black colour, very dark brown head. Aroma of coffee, licorice, tar. Very soft carbon, oily texture. Heavy body. Awesome.
